Today when I went to check out a slew of books from the library in preparation for my upcoming exams, I was asked if I wanted to recall a book that was out and that I had on my list of ones to get. After I said yes, the lady behind the desk informed me that I couldn’t recall the book because I apparently already had it checked out. Apparently you can’t recall a book from yourself. The sad thing is, the book in question was one that I had in my hand at the time: one I had picked up on a whim, without really noticing that it was also on my “must have” reading list. Oops twice over.
